As i mentioned the police are stating that the driver had a split lip. If my partner went back into an interview with a solictor and asked to see the actual evidence and then stated no comment would this be feasible?, ie in order to see what evidence. My ex husband is a police officer and has suggested that there is a 6 month time limit on common assault and is questioning the other pc's approach....our uncertainty is whether to go back and be re-interviewed, or as my ex has suggested stating 'that there is nothing further to add'
I just wondered if you could still advise. My partner has been back for an interview and was supported by a duty solicitor who was a 'solicitor advocate', he has persuded my partner to accept a caution, as the police disclosed a further injury of a loose tooth, which required dental work and was bleeding.
Advocate advised very strongly that this was abh and so was the split lip... he then stated that prosecutor would argue that history of bad feeling with bus driver and partenr was aggressive. etc
Without wishing to be rude, is a solicitor advocate suitable to give this advice, as yet my aprtner has not accepted the caution. Du to go tomorrow
